Israeli Bombs Killed 66 Kids in Gaza Including 12 Who Were Getting Help for Trauma from Past Attacks

As the United Nations human rights chief warns Israel may have committed war crimes in Gaza, we look at how Israel killed 12 Palestinian children being treated for trauma from past Israeli bombings.

Jan Egeland, secretary general of the Norwegian Refugee Council, says Gaza has become "the home of hopelessness," particularly for young people in the besieged territory.

"We humanitarian workers are sick and tired of building and rebuilding and see it all torn down again,"

Egeland says of Israel's repeated attacks on Gaza. "We are accumulating rubble, we're accumulating dead children, and we're accumulating hopelessness, if it continues like this."
